"No - it's mechanism of action isn't fully understood, it does act as an antihistamine and anticholinergic though. It also causes the esophageal sphincter to contract. It's usually fairly well tolerated. Cyclizine is widely used in the UK as an antiemetic."

Oh, I see. Hey, that might be good for GERD since it causes the LES to contract?

After I lowered the dose to 12.5mg/day I feel much better. I only slept 3 hours and feel wide awake now, but no nausea. 25mg was too much. Perhaps I can remain on this low dose for a week or two and if that works, I can increase it as needed.

You are right about the benzo taper. I think GABA, unlike dopamine or other neurotransmitters, takes longer to return to normal so the taper should be smooth and slow.
